Add Additional Events

Additional Events are managed within the Offer view.  Specifically, they are found in the "Revenue & Payout" section.  The tutorial below walks through the process of adding Additional Events. These events allow you to track things that happen in addition to the "Base" Conversion, either before or after. They could be things such as "Purchase", "Registration", "Sale", etc... Each event is basically treated as a separate conversion with its own postback. One transaction ID(click) can generate many events, each event has its own unique postback url.

2. Private vs Public

Private will hide the event and all its data from the affiliate. They will not see it in their dashboard or have any reporting on it. 

Public will make the event accessible to the affiliate. They will see reporting on it and be allowed to get paid for it as well.

You can choose from a few different revenue and payout types: RPA, RPS, and RPA+RPS these behave the same way as when set on the base conversion. Please click here for more details on these types.
